While Malaysia fiddles, its opportunities are running dry
By Michael Backman

MALAYSIA’S been at it again, arguing about what proportion of the economy each of its two main races — the Malays and the Chinese — owns. It’s an argument that’s been running for 40 years. That wealth and race are not synonymous is important for national cohesion, but really it’s time Malaysia grew up.

It’s a tough world out there and there can be little sympathy for a country that prefers to argue about how to divide wealth rather than get on with the job of creating it.

The long-held aim is for 30 per cent of corporate equity to be in Malay hands, but the figure that the Government uses to justify handing over huge swathes of public companies to Malays but not to other races is absurd. It bases its figure on equity valued, not at market value, but at par value.

Read full article here [ www.michaelbackman.com/LatestAgeColumn2.html ]. (Go read it. It you can’t understand, email me, maybe I can do a Malay translation)

The best part of the article has to be the last line:

That’s not Malaysia “boleh”, that’s Malaysia “bodoh” (stupid).

I say… it indeed is f*cking “bodoh”!

And this is his follow up article addressed specially to Malaysians. http://www.michaelbackman.com/Malaysia.html

This is written by an foreigner who don’t want to see our country go to h*ll because he loves Malaysia. But what are we, young Malaysian graduates (especially Chinese) going to do about our government? Mind our own business and say ‘aiyah, what to do’?! We have to let our votes count.

Our current government has ruled the country for so long it thinks that being unloyal to UMNO means being unloyal to Malaysia. UMNO is not Malaysia. UMNO (specifically the UMNOPutras) is a corrupted-loud mouthed-selfish-greedy party that doesn’t care about normal people like you and me.

At the same time, MCA is a spineless (takda tulang belakang) party. Actually, dickless; a dickless puppet. Its sole existence is the opposite of what it is supposed to do. It is supposed to represent the Chinese. But it has done nothing of it. It is so dickless that they can’t even bring up issues relating to the Chinese community to the parliament and government. Seriously, ask yourself, what has MCA done for the people it represents? That’s right, merasmikan berbagai-bagai jenis acara. MCA is a politically-castrated* component party. [*castrated = cut off testiscles/ding dongs/’choon doi’]

However, we continue to vote for it because we think that it is better to have a puppet in the government than none at all. Voting for MCA means voting for BN means voting for UMNO. Voting for UMNO means giving them the mandate to take our money and put it in their own wallet.
If you don’t want your money, don’t give it to UMNO/MCA/MIC. Give it to me. At least you know I’ll treat you to a meal more frequently than BN will repair the pot holes in front of your house.

I’ll follow up with another article about why we should NOT vote for BN. Vote for PAS also not so ‘sui’
